The hour-long highlights3066-hero-cpl-t20 programme, as well as the delayed knockout matches for the Semi-Finals and Finals, will air on the two ESPN Caribbean networks along with ESPN Play (www.espnplay.com), ESPN’s multiscreen live and on-demand broadband platform. This is the third year that ESPN Caribbean has covered CPL in the region.

“We’re looking forward to working with ESPN Caribbean again to deliver a world class production for viewers,” said Pete Russell, COO Caribbean Premier League. “Word has spread fast that the CPL truly is the Biggest Party in Sport and our combination of the best West Indies and International stars performing in a unique Caribbean carnival atmosphere has proved a winning formula.”

“We are delighted bring the Caribbean Premier League once more to cricket fans in the region,” said Scott McGlone, director of programming, ESPN International. “Cricket is an essential part of our programming mix in the Caribbean and CPL is one of the sport’s marquee tournaments. Our mission is to deliver to the best in sport to fans and there is no better example than this world-class event taking place right now in the Caribbean.”

The highlights show will replay daily and as the tournament progresses, providing detailed and expert analysis as well as relevant background information such as key statistics and the standouts on the match-day. Winners of last year’s edition, Barbados Tridents, will join two-time finalists, Guyana Amazon Warriors, as well as 2013 champions, Jamaica Tallawahs, alongside Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel, St. Lucia Zouks and newcomers, St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots, who replace Antigua Hawksbills. These six teams will engage each other across the Caribbean in one Group under a round-robin format with the initial round of games bowling off in Barbados on June 20 in a replay of last year’s final. The top four teams at the end of the group stage will advance to the knockouts in Trinidad and Tobago with the third-place and fourth-place teams facing off in the first eliminator (July 23) to qualify to face the group stage runners-up in the second eliminator (July 25).
